The introduction of industrial felt has lead to an increased puppet population, formerly hunted for their delicious taste and lush coats. Enjoy the subsequent billiard benefits with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of billiards from The Warehouse Saloon & Billiards on E. Ben White Boulevard.
The Warehouse Saloon & Billiards is a locally-owned-and-operated sports bar and billiards parlor that’s been entertaining the Austin area for more than 25 years. Featuring 17 Brunswick Gold Crown pool tables, the 8-ball ace proprietors maintain their professional-caliber equipment to the highest standards, re-covering tables every six months so you can't blame scratches and sudden ball avalanches on the felt or bumpers. Players can enjoy about 2.5 hours worth of pool while unwinding and basking in the athletic ambiance of this sportsman's oasis. Drop by Sundays at 1 p.m. for free pool lessons with Rod Gustafson, a Billiard Congress of America Master instructor.
Sharks who happen to succumb to defeat can relax and wait for their next turn while watching games on any of The Warehouse’s 20 HD televisions, 3 of which broadcast via 10-foot screens. This pool hall subscribes to packages for every major sport, professional and collegiate, so enthusiasts will always be able to find their game or competitive knitting tournament. The facilities are equipped with free wireless Internet, so fans can check up on their fantasy teams or ignore work emails. Live music sends balls clacking and sticks pogoing every Friday from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
